    EWG's Top 5 Reasons to Choose Filters Over Bottled Water

    EWG's Top 5 Reasons to Choose Filters Over Bottled Water

    If you're concerned about contaminants in the tap water you drink every day, you're not alone. We all deserve to know what we'll be putting in our bodies when we turn on the tap. This is one of the reasons why EWG created its Tap Water Database in the first place.

    But if you want safer water for yourself and your family, bottled water isn't the solution - not for your pocketbook, not for your health and certainly not for our planet. Your best option for cleaner, healthier drinking water on the go is filtered tap water and a reusable glass or stainless steel container. As we say here at EWG, know your water, pick the best filter and choose a BPA-free container.

    Here are five reasons why you should say no to bottled water and choose filtered instead.

    • 1. The cost.
    • 2. The quality.
    • 3. The bottle itself.
    • 4. The trash.
    • 5. The wasted energy.

    NSF International Has Information for People Concerned About Lead in Drinking Water

    Lead in drinking water has evolved into a nationwide concern. Lead can come from decaying infrastructure underground and fixtures in your home. NSF International is a public health and safety organization which has led development of standards governing water quality. In 1990, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency replaced its own drinking water standards with a water advisory program that includes these NSF/ANSI standards. NSF certifies water treatment and filtration systems to these standards. If you are concerned about lead in your drinking water, NSF International has educational resources, guides and tips.
